Here is an old Bathurst 1972 500 special. This is the race that started the Peter Brock legend and the first Torana win in the mighty 6 cylinder GTR XU-1. It was later called Bathurst 1000 when they changed to kilometres.
The Armstrong 500 (1965)
The 1965 Armstrong 500 was the sixth running of the Bathurst 500 touring
car race. Held at Mount Panorama Circuit, watch the (soon to be) legendary
Barry Seton with Midge Bosworth drive their Ford Cortina Mk1 GT500 to
victory, then drive it home afterwards!
All credit to the original owners.

Running From The Guns
Australian B grade movie from the late '80s. Plot, acting and dialogue were
all pretty bad. It featured rising star Jon Blake who ended up with
horrific injuries while working on his next film. The good guys drove a
real Shelby Cobra, COB 6043 I think is it's serial number. There's some
great Aussie cars in it too.
Peter Brock: The last studio interview In Pit Lane
I had thought this was already up on YouTube but it appears not. So in
response to those who want to see it once again here is our special
interview show with Brocky recorded on the eve of him leaving for The
Goodwood Revival. Less than 2 weeks later he was gone, killed in a crash
while competing in the Targa West Tarmac Rally in Western Australia.
To this day it's hard to watch this without feeling so sad, and also
wondering just what Brock would be doing now. It'd be something pretty
exciting I would imagine.
Sorry about the quality but it was encoded as a podcast back when podcasts
were really small.
